Council looks for businesses to open up in Keynsham's £34m town centre
Published on: 09 Dec 2013
Traders in and around Keynsham are being urged to take up shop units in the redeveloped town centre due to open next year.
Bath and North East Somerset Council is now marketing space in the £34 million regeneration site to both national and local firms.
The 12 units are in the north and south blocks and range from 750 square feet to 4,700 square feet, with some flexibility in how some of these are arranged.
Councillor David Bellotti (Lib-Dem, Lyncombe), Cabinet Member for Community Resources, said, “This is yet another exciting milestone for the regeneration of Keynsham town centre.
"The commercial units are a fundamental part of this project and marketing them from today shows the momentum that Bath & North East Somerset Council has got behind the rejuvenation of this part of town. Bringing businesses into the new development is part of our plan to bring new jobs and opportunities to local people.
“Overall, the project continues to be on-time and on-budget. People can really see the buildings taking shape in front of their eyes.”
